Hair Update - It's all about the volume







These two products are absolute life savers, after running out of my John Freida volume spray I had no clue what to try next. I found this Bed Head Volumising Hairspray when I was at home last week alongside this Urban Sea Salt spray, so I thought why not just mix the products together and see how it goes. 

I would definitely recommend you going out and getting this Bed Head product, I remember purchasing it from a salon in Manchester quite a few years ago but I had seen it in a lot of shops beforehand, if they don't stock it anymore then Bed Head is an amazing brand so you should be able to get something similar. I just spray it around the roots of my hair, but you have to dry it as soon as possible as it can turn your hair a bit straw like.
 
I then spritz the Sea Salt spray through the rest of my hair to give it a little bit of texture, I'm not exactly sure where I picked this up from but there are loads of sea salt sprays out there, the next brand I'm wanting to try is Bumble & Bumble, I have read such good reviews. 

For me I cannot stick to one product to add volume to my hair, once one has run out I have to try something new!

Benefit 10 - Contouring Heaven



It really is all about contouring at the minute, I have never been very adventurous to try this as I never thought I had the appropriate product to give it a whirl, plus it makes me very nervous to try a new make up look. With Kim Kardashian rocking this look for many years (I LOVE HER!) I had to try and follow in her footsteps. After watching one of Tanya Burr's videos I noticed she had used the real techniques powder brush to apply her bronzer to create the contour effect, so I thought I would give this a go with my Benefit Hoola. However I still couldn't master it well at all, I struggled to get the perfect definition of my cheekbones and it was driving me crazy.

Then, I re-discovered my Benefit 10 blusher/bronzer combo in the bottom of my make up box, with it being half bronzer and half blusher/highlighter I realised it is made for contouring. The bronzer looks fairly dark in the box so you only need to apply a little at once, if your not careful you could look with grubby cheeks and that really isn't a good look.The other half is a pale creamy pink, perfect to highlight your cheekbones, both are extremely glittery which is a little off putting for me as I prefer more matte looks, but it looks beautiful on, it makes your cheeks look fresh and brighter.

The only downside and major issue here is, Benefit have now stopped making this product!! Why? I have no idea, but this makes me very sad and I am now going to have to go on the hunt to find another product just as good.

If anyone has any recommendations then please comment below, I'd love to see what you are all loving at the moment.
